Trump: Fox ‘much more important’ than CNN


President Trump praised Fox News and ripped CNN on Saturday, saying on Twitter that the conservative-leaning news network is more important than the cable network. 

“Fox News is MUCH more important in the United States than CNN, but outside of the U.S., CNN International is still a major source of (Fake) news, and they represent our Nation to the WORLD very poorly. The outside world does not see the truth from them!” the president said in a tweet. 

Trump’s tweet is his latest attack on CNN, which he branded earlier this year as “fake news.” {mosads}

The president has shown a kinder side to the conservative-leaning network, however, often tweeting praise of its anchors and stories. 

The tweet comes amid tensions over a potential merger between AT&T and Time Warner. The Justice Department allegedly told AT&T to sell off either CNN’s parent company or DirecTV as a condition of approving the merger. 

The department formally sued AT&T to block the $85 billion merger on Monday, arguing that it would hurt competition and consumers.  

AT&T has denied it has offered to sell the cable network, or that it would in the future. 
The Justice Department move has drawn criticism from observers who note that Trump is often critical of CNN. 
Trump railed against the merger on Tuesday, telling reporters it would be bad for the U.S. 
“Personally, I’ve always felt that that was a deal that’s not good for the country,” the president said.
